Jernigan : a novel by David Gates( Book )

36 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Jernigan's life is slipping out of control. His wife's gone, he's lost his job and he's a stranger to his teenage son. Worse, his only relief from all this reality-alcohol-is less effective by the day. And when the medicine doesn't work, you up the dose. And when that doesn't work, what then? (Apart from upping the dose again anyway, because who knows?) Jernigan's answer is to slowly turn his caustic wit on everyone around him-his wife Judith, his teenage son Danny, his vulnerable new girlfriend Martha and, eventually, himself-until the laughs have turned to mute horror. But while he's busy burning every bridge back to the people who love him, Jernigan's perverse charisma keeps us all in thrall to the bitter end. Shot through with gin and irony, Jernigan is a funny, scary, mesmerising portrait of a man walking off the edge with his eyes wide open-wisecracking all the way

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Hand Reached Down to Guide Me is populated by characters, young or old or neither, who are well educated, broadly knowledgeable, often creative and variously accomplished, whether as a doctor or a composer, an academic or a journalist. And every one of them carries a full supply of the human condition: parents in assisted-living-or assisted-dying-facilities, too many or too few people in their families and marriages, the ties that bind a sometimes messy knot, age an implacable foe, impulses pulling them away from comfort into distraction or catastrophe. Terrifyingly self-aware, they refuse to go gently-even when they're going nowhere fast, in settings that range across the metropolitan and suburban Northeast to the countryside of upstate New York and New England
